Considered? Actually stayed there a few times in the late 80s and early 90s, i.e., long before it was refurbished into the lovely gem it is today.
If you take the time to inspect the rooms before paying you can always find a decent, clean and safe guesthouse. Was a cheap place to stay before picking me load of gold and Hasselblads. Excellent canteens there, too. Every time I pass through HK I still stop by for a meal - I'm starting to salivate just thinking about 'em. The major hassle of the place is the elevators' glacial pace.
